In light of recent developments around coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe, ESTRO has made the decision to postpone ESTRO 2020 and the World Congress of Brachytherapy 2020. At Elekta, we support this decision and are also cancelling all of our related events in April in Vienna.
We believe this is the right decision given the current circumstances and recommendations from the World Health Organization. The team at Elekta fully appreciate and welcome this decision as your health and safety, along with our customers and own staff is our number one priority.
We are also keeping those directly affected by COVID-19 in our thoughts.
